Panelist at the 35th Annual CSA Conference
As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I am very excited to be a guest panelist at the 35th Annual Celiac Sprue Association Conference on October 6th. My topic is "Gluten-Free Blogging," something I have been well versed in since 2007 when I first launched this blog Gluten-Free Fun. In 2011, I launched Gluten-Free Globetrotter while overseas in the Czech Republic so blogging is definitely an integral part of my life.

My panel moderator, Cheryl Harris, put together a wonderful post about our session that I would like to share with you. If you are attending the CSA conference, I would love to meet you! I will be there all day Friday and Saturday. Please find me in person, via Twitter, or even by email at gfreefun AT
